We were a large group of women on a hen party and had Josh leading the class. He was fabulous at keeping everyone entertained and not letting the banter descend into chaos. Unlike many classes, Bobo Lobo had enough equipment for everyone to make their cocktails at once and allowed everyone time to drink up, we weren't rushed at all.... More

An ad hoc visit discovered this great tapas bar. Best calamari since being abroad, lovley brie and chutney. Philly wrap (no problem doctoring to suit my tastes, added jalapeño) and very special chips plus great monitor. Friendly, service orientated, yet none intrusive staff (it gets my goat if you get asked how's the food in the middle of a mouth... More

It was really great looking after you guys, thanks for your kind comments. Your calamari, in addition to pretty much every thing else we serve is homemade on a daily basis, so I'm glad you are able to taste the difference! It was also refreshing to host a couple with such good music tastes as yourselves! Thanks for enjoying our... More

The service was great here, very quick. The food was quite good, however the pulled pork didn't live up to expectations. We ordered the sharing platter BBQ and the rest of it was very good.

Myself and some friends had a late lunch here on a Saturday. The restaurant is small and at the back of a bar. Looking at the room we were a bit unsure about what to expect, but we were trusting the reviews on TripAdvisor when we chose this place to eat. Our faith in the other reviewers was well rewarded....

Everything about this place was fantastic, the burgers were one of the best we've ever had and the staff were so friendly and very generous with free drinks for my husbands birthday. A real gem!

It was my pleasure to look after a drink or two for your Husband's birthday celebration. It was quite noisy when you came in and I was quite conscious of the fact that I didn't want your family meal interrupted by any other clientele, so I hope the ambiance was suitable for you. I agree- everything about our place is... More

I regularly visit BoBo LoBo and each visit has been just as good as the last (or, if not better). Combined with great customer service, amazing (and cheap) cocktails, beautiful food and top class evening entertainment (old school tunes and other floor fillers) this is a venue to visit visit when in York either during the day or by night....

Wow- thanks so much for this review; its incredibly nice of you to say these kind words about your experience. The music policy is pretty relaxed here- but we like to keep it cool and relevant to our clientele on a particular evening. I take your point about the card minimum payment of £10. It is something which is under... More

Booked cocktail making here for a hen party of 12.. it was brilliant!! Thought it was great value for money, prosecco on arrival and making our cocktails.

We are really happy you enjoyed your masterclass- thanks for taking the time to post your review. We understand the bar is quite small during the day- as we like to keep the back area separate for food. However, this area soon turns into our Dance floor and DJ area later on. Hope to see you guys again soon! More
